Core i7-3770K Cracks 6.616 GHz Utilizing 63.0x Multiplier

Intel's upcoming Core "Ivy Bridge" processors for overclockers, namely the Core i7-3770K, and Core i5-3570K, feature multiplier values previously unavailable for Core "Sandy Bridge" series. Chinese proverclocker x-powerx800pro scraped 6.616 GHz utilizing a base clock multiplier value of 63.0x, a clock speed of 6584.86 MHz (104.52 x 63) was validated using the same setup. These clock speeds were backed by core voltages such as 1.056V, and cooled by extreme cooling. The test-bench included a GIGABYTE Z77X-UD5H, 2x 2 GB G.Skill DDR3-2133 MHz memory, and Corsair AX1200W PSU. These clock speeds were found to be Pi-stable, with 6.511 GHz yielding SuperPi 1M timing of 5.585s.

Hopefully it does well with air or low end watercooling, I don't really care what it can do on LN2 xD

I remember reading something about 7ghz. Thats pretty close. Regular cooling apparently gets you to around 4.6ghz I have also read.

I bets its much faster clock per clock though...

8.4GHz > 6.6GHz suck that Intel!!!

On topic, these chips have proven to be pretty toasty, even with "reasonable" voltage values

What is the stock voltage for this chip? Cuz 1.056 seems super low to me.

Troll bait taken!
All cores enabled and no HT > 1 module enabled ie 2 "cores" in a 8 "core" processor

ES vs. retail. Some of the rumors/previews going around with retail chips aren't doing very well.

did anyone believe that, 6.6ghz at 1.05v ? i know it's engineering sample but still not acceptable.

if it ain't on air its gibberish to my ear.

funny thing though, intel atleast enables all of their cores and threads to reach this clockspeed ;) 6ghz with 4 cores and 8 threads as versus 8ghz with what was it? 2 sub par cores? yep nice work amd...

Volts are wrong, CPU-z is pulling the wrong voltage like it did with the Z68 and P67.. Volts on that will be over 1.6

These kind of posts are leading people to think that the 3770K is actually a better OCer than the 2600K when it comes to airwater cooling witch is not right.

To be able to run this bench @ 6.5 GHz with all cores and threads enabled: impressive. IIRC, Chew* (@ XS) posted over 7GHz WoW gaming screenies but can't find them, @ the moment :(

Still, why the hell do they keep using a completely out-of-date bench for this??? I said it before here and here.

This chip is quite a bit better then AMD's current top offers (for regular use): i just think they could show it off with something that can actually show it's true power rather then with something that can be misleading due to the code used in it's programing.

LN2? When it can reach those speed on air, then we can talk.

i want to see how far the Intel Xeon X5690 could go, i reckon 8-9 Ghz

whats that entropy?

amd have nearly a 2 ghz advantage in speed and they still cant beat its benchscores?

well done amd, you built a fast chip that can do fuck all....

i am looking forward to these chips, after sandy was so easy to oc it will be nice to see chips that need good cooling to get the best out of them again, it will sort the men from the (fan)boys.

Since the X5690 isn't the same gimped die as the 3960k. I suspect it doesn't overclock at all since it has a locked multiplier and if you go more than a couple mhz over the stock bclk it will crash on you. Xeons aren't designed to be overclocked, they're designed for stability, that is why it is a server CPU.

LN2 benchmarks are eye-candy. Since CPUS can handle LN2 24/7 and since LN2 is a viable 24/7 overclock. It really doesn't matter, it's just a "look what we did!" kind of thing.
